Feed Creator The myth of "keeping up" « My passion is awesome, your passion is lame | Main | The strangest, easiest way to lose weight » The myth of "keeping up" Do you have a stack of books, journals, manuals, articles, API docs, and blog printouts that you think you'll get to? That you think you need to read? Now, based on past experience, what are the odds you'll get to all of it? Half of it? So you let the stack of "things to read" pile up, then eventually when the pile gets to high you end up tossing half of it--or worse, moving it to a deeper "stuff to read someday stack. You can't keep up. TechnologyCurrent eventsPop cultureProfessional practicesHealth/fitness/diet trendsAnd on and on and on... Why do we pressure ourselves? By the year 2000, it had become impossible for even a Sun Java engineer--someone creating the API--to be familiar with everything in the standard library. So... it's time to let that go. Besides letting go, what else can we do to combat Information Anxiety? Cut the redundancy! TrackBack Comments Hi,

When I first learned how to harness the power of the read/write web, it was by aggregating all of the blogs that meant something to me. Whether it was answering the daily challenges of Weblogg-ed, finding meaning in Edublog Insights, or trying to parse through the Borderland, I was enraptured by all of the great work already happening in the edublogosphere. Now, I find myself with less and less time to read what others are because I am so consumed with trying to make my own vision of School 2.0 work. Well, I think I may have found a solution, both for myself and for all of the people who seem to be having the same trouble (I know that there are at least a few of you out there). The real reason, though, that I am so excited about finding this new feed reader is that I can imagine having a set of these in the classroom (5-10) and setting them up next to the bookshelf. What do you think?
